Don’t want to walk, Will Ferrell?  Here’s an electric scooter. Don’t like patterned couches, Mariah Carey? Here’s a plain black one instead. After The Smoking Gun released leaked documents of celebrity backstage requests, FIB counts down the top 5 celebrities with the down right craziest demands and beware, they’re crazy.

We can already hear you screaming with rage that the one and only Queen B made it onto this list. Every queen has her needs, even if it is keeping her room a certain temperature and only being able to drink Pepsi, not Coca-Cola. ?

Justin Bieber

You had to know the same guy that wants meals named after his songs was going to have his backstage demands leaked. But you know what, these demands don’t seem outrageously crazy. Listen, he just wants his clothes to be ironed (we’re assuming!) and some untouched food.

  • All rooms must maintain a constant temperature of 68 to 75 degrees.

All on ice:

  • 2 Cases of water
  • 2 Cases of Coke
  • 1 Case Ginger Ale
  • 2 Cases Diet Coke
  • Professional quality iron and ironing board
  • 1 Professional quality steamer
  • 1 Vicks steam inhaler
  • Food items should be fresh and covered by clear plastic wrap
  • Star MUST have a private bathroom

Will Ferrell

Whether you’re a fan of Will Ferrell or not, you’re going to love this. 99% sure that he’s just taking the piss.  But part of me wants to know if any organisers have actually gone ahead and delivered the comedian of his unusual requests. I know I would.

The Demands: 

  • 1 Electric three wheel mobility scooter
  • 1 headset microphone (Janet Jackson style)
  • 1 flight of stairs on wheels

  • Guinness beer
  • Smart Water or Fiji Water
  • Coke, Diet Coke, 7Up

Can you imagine Will Ferrell screaming down the hall: “CAN SOMEONE GET ME MY FAKE TREE ON WHEELS PLEASE!!!”

Mariah Carey

Don’t worry Mariah, I saved this spot on the list for your diva-ness.  Who would have thought that this class act would have a hate for patterned couches and gum with sugar in it?  Sigh.  Mariah just being Mariah.
